The World Number 1 Rafael Nadal Wins at Monte-Carlo... and Becomes a Legend
At the first big tennis event of the season, the world number 1 goes into the tennis history books by wining on Sunday, April 17th, his seventh consecutive victory at Monte Carlo, with a Richard Mille RM 027 tourbillon on his wrist.
Rafael Nadal won against fellow countryman David Ferrer in two sets, 6-4, 7-5. This success makes him the big favorite of Les Internationaux de France, next May at Roland Garros where he will hope to win his sixth title. At only 24 years old, Rafael Nadal has already won nine Grand Slams.
The Majorcan tennis player has been playing with a Richard Mille on his wrist since last year. This rather exceptional watch, the RM 027 tourbillon, was specially created for him by Richard Mille. Following the success of this watch and the collaboration with Rafael Nadal, the brand presented its new model, the RM 035, at the beginning of this year. The RM 035 is equipped with the skeletonised RMUL1 manual winding movement weighing only 4.3 grammes and is the first of the collection to have obtained the Chronofiable® certificate after a series of exacting tests to gauge its capacity to withstand extreme conditions without affecting the watch’s performance.
